Default Gaui X2

I suppose most of you are already aware of this, but I just ran into it and thought I would share.

Nice video, but its not called an X2 yet. These helis are still being marketed under the original name which is the GAUI HURRICANE 255. I beleive the GAUI X2 will be a new model released by Gaui this year and it will basically be a HURRICANE 255 with all the upgrades included out of the box as well as the Flybarless rotorhead.

I've Just finished my X5 and I really want one of these little machines for my next heli, gonna replace my 450.

Any Idea if Gaui have actually announced that they will do an X2 FES Kit? would love to get a kit with everything like i did for my X5 FES, would be great to essentially be able to fly with just a Rx and Battery needed.

The X4 is not "modded" by pitchup.se, it's a pure gaui product that comes like this from the factory in taiwan. The diffrence is, that it is a very special machine only produced for these guys. Its the same with the X2, its a special version and it will be available from other places later.

Probably similar to the X5 FES combo kits they made like the one I bought

Ok, I was mistaken sort of, local hobby shop has x5 kit, was 899, not super combo
it only has the motor and esc, no other electronics, now they have a fes x5 for 899.
and the x5 kit is 699.
still my build is 550 complete, all electronics, and 1 battery (2 3s 3300 in series)
just gotta shop around, ever dollar saved, can buy more heli parts.
I know if I can't afford it I shouldn't buy it, I can, but im not overpaying.
as soon as I get my 4 axis cnc table top mill running, I will be cutting all my own frame parts. It can cut aluminum, but it will be cutting carbon for the most part.
